-chair chad brown joins me along with the great dana milbank. chad, when id think this steve king thing is so fraught with stuff. here's a guy whose brain puts together this weird simultaneous equation. people come across the border from mexico or somewhere else all of a certain size, but they're that big wide legs that he compares to of all the fruits in the world, cantaloupe and their carrying 75 pounds of marijuana. i was trying to figure out how much 75 pounds of marijuana would look like. it would be bigger than this whole room. 75 pounds. how does he put his head around all these negative thoughts just to show how much contempt he has for latinos? think he's smiling because i'm smiling. it's weird. it's weird. your thoughts. tell me why you quit the party, by the way. >> well, it was a decision that was very personal for me. i spoke with several friends, family members, a pastor. i felt uncomfortable with a lot of the hateful rhetoric, and with these issues, the immigration issue, for example. it's the rhetoric, and not just from the representative king but social media is everywhere wi
. for the politics of it all, dana millbank. first to you, ambassador. american aid to egypt is about $1.5 billion a year, but $1.3 billion of that goes immediately back into american private corporations defense contractors for egypt to buy weapons. just cutting off aid to egypt isn't exactly the answer because that would have a negative impact on america. >> toure, there's so much naval gazing going on with this foreign policy issue it seems we're getting totally lost in the weeds here. the fact of the matter is that the egyptian generals do not need this $1.3 billion or $1.5 billion. whatever is left in the pipeline for the rest of this fiscal year is about $300 million. the saudis and others have said they will step in and fill the gap in. let me tell you, it's just a matter of time before vladimir putin says to the egyptians, guess what, russia will step in and fill whatever the americans don't provide here. we have to stand up for our values. if we want to suspend aid, that's the main reason. it will have no bearing on the decision making of the generals who have already dismissed what the o
congressional correspondent dana bash joins us from our washington bureau with more on that side of the story. good morning. >> good morning, carol. two members of congress who have been demanding consultation and input on the administration strategy on syria and they also want evidence that the military action, if it is used, would be justified. >> cnn has told top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on a thursday night conference call they have no doubt assad's regime was behind deadly chemical attacks there. revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high-level syrian official which clearly indicates they were responsible for these. the half hour into telephone briefing began moments after british parliament struck at least a short-term blow to u.s. hopes of a coalition defeating a measure authorizing force against syria. though, obama officials insisted no decisions have been made on military action against syria. cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat, the u.s. could engage with or without supp
be, are not up for debate. cnn's dana bash, our chief congressional correspondent, joins me now. when you look at history, dana, it shows that presidents -- just a reminder. u i any you know this. presidents can launch military action without approval from congress. grenada, '83. pan na, '89. iraq, '91. haiti, '94. kosovo, '99. why a briefing in a couple of hours, dana bash? >> reporter: in short, politics. members of congress, even natural allies of president obama have been demanding coordination. tonight 6:00 p.m. this evening secretaries of state and defense and others will hold a conference call with president obama and other key committee heads to discuss the nation's posture on syria. what's interesting is that lawmakers are not here. they are still back in their states, in their districts on congressional recess. since they're all over the country, some will be on their cell phones. it is not going to be a secure line. meaning it can't be classified. it's going to be an unclassified conversation. one source who's going to be on the call who i talked to kind of rolled his eyes
completely different in the nsa -- >> but he said it so well. >> day in a, talk about -- dana, what do you think of his remarks? did it come too late? he covered a lot of ground. >> okay. i think it was three weeks too late. i would have said that he should have done this press conference about three weeks ago because when he said that all of these things in washington were phony scandals, one of them that he's talking about is the nsa issue. i have defended the president on all this and i keep asking, could you help us defend you. he did something today, he made very clear he's gog have four-point plan and talked about the four-point plan. it's amazing when you have unemployment at what it is, the part-time jobs issue, he wants to talk about the middle class and he's talking about section 215 of the patriot act? we are down way, way, way down in the weeds. i think again, he could have done it three weeks ago. i would have said he should have done more about the middle class up at the top. i don't think the announcement needed to be about this. >> before he got smacked around by the presid
the newly elected prints pal dana carter was making children kneel and waiting for them to december miss him. he put it in place as a safety measure but after several complaints gherting rid of it. >> coming up for a second time this week a random act of violence has taken a life. this time it was the life of an 89-year-old veteran to survived whorld war 2 only to be beaten to death by two teenagers. >> one tennessee theater owner is refusing to show a butler. on this day in history in 1992 "unforgiven" directed by and starring clint eastwood was the number one movie. uhh, it's my geico insurance id card, sir. it's digital, uh, pretty cool right? maybe. you know why i pulled you over today? because i'm a pig driving a convertible? tail light's out.. fix it. digital insurance id cards. just a click away with the geico mobile app. >> for the second time this week a random act of violence has taken a life. a veteran provide rorld war 2 only to be beaten to death by teenagers. >> an extreme weather alert a state of emergency issued for yosemite park where wildfires continue to rage. a first look
to cover every angel of it beginning with dana >>> top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on the thursday night conference call they have no doubt ba sar assad's regime in syria was behind deadly chemical attacks there. secretaries of state, defense and others backed that up by revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high level syrian official, which clearly indicates they were responsible for these weapons, that according to congressman el yol engel who participated in the call. though obama insists no decisions have been made, cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat the u.s. could engage with or without support from great britain. bob corker emerged from briefings thursday announcing support for surgical proportional military strikes, given the evidence of continued use of chemical warfare. bob menendez reaffirmed his support saying a decisive and consequential u.s. response is justified and warranted. . others argued the president still has to come before congress and the amer
's begin, though, with your chief congressional correspondent, dana bash. she has details of the syria conference call with members of conference -- members of congress going on right now. da dana, what do we know? >> we know that it has begun and this is good news for lawmakers, who have been really asking the obama administration for more information, was we have pretty heavy hitters, the secretaries of defense and state, as you said. other officials, talking to congressional leaders and key committee heads of both parties. that's the good news for them. the bad news for these lawmakers is that obama officials are going to be limited in what they can say, because they're going to be talking, or are as we speak, on a phone line that is not secure. so what that means is that they're going to be able to discuss only unclassified information. and that could rule out what many of these lawmakers really want to know. what the intelligence the administration has the to back claims about assad using chemical weapons, not to mention military options for strikes against the syrian regime. that
to see more movement on this whole issue? >> i certainly hope so. another of karen's colleagues, dana priest, has chronicled how pathetic the congressional oversight is of the intelligence machinery of the country and i think this report continues to show that. what is disturbing to me about this report and karen raised with the issues of the various typos is how powerful algorithms are. when you're punching in data and so much is digitized the accident flow that comes out of these areas. a book by jim risen called "state of war," to connect that to that there was the -- showing our contacts in iran that were disclosed to the public because of another kind of similar error. so i think that we need to get in and see congress really review its own oversight of these bureaucracies. >> you put in 202 versus 20 that could result in what it did, it boggles the mind for the possibilities here. thank you both so much for coming on. have a good weekend. >> you too. >>> 2016 is being called the year of the presidential woman. hillary clinton in particular. big conference about to convene this m
